Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, has expressed disappointment over the awful performance by the Super Eagles against Sierra Leone.
The Minister also questioned the competence of the Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr who failed to lead the Nigeria team to victory against Sierra Leone.
Sunday Dare, who made this known in a tweet on Wednesday, stated that the “needful will be done” as Nigerian football deserved better.
Rohr has come under severe criticism after the Eagles failed to defeat Sierra Leone over two legs at the ongoing 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
The Eagles redeemed their image on Tuesday playing a goalless draw at the Siaka Stevens Stadium, Freetown.
The performance of the Super Eagles from their last two matches calls to question the suitability and competences of Technical Adviser, Rohr. Nigerian football deserves better. The needful will be done. Apologies to all football lovers.

The result comes after the team threw away a 4-0 lead to draw 4-4 in a matchday 3 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Edo State last Friday.
“The performance of the Super Eagles from their last two matches calls to question the suitability and competence of Technical Adviser, Rohr. Nigerian football deserves better. The needful will be done. Apologies to all football lovers.”
The Eagles still stay top of Group L with eight points, one ahead of the second-placed Benin Republic who they face on matchday 5 in Cotonou. A win for the Eagles in the encounter will secure qualification for the 2022 AFCON in Cameroon
Sierra Leone is third with three points while Lesotho sits at the bottom of the group with two points from four matches.
